Imagine you’re on top of a mountain and you’re looking out to the wide open sky. Imagine the sky is vast blue for as far as you can see in all directions. Imagine the sun is shining, air is brisk and a cool breeze is gently brushing your face. You can see mountain tops far ahead with snow caps and trees on skirts far distant. You can see patches of white fluffy clouds, moving slowly with no purpose.
Throw something to that sky and it won’t stick.
Clouds will slowly drift away. The sky won’t hold on to them.
Birds fly by, sky won’t claim them.
Airplanes fly by, sky won’t be proud
If missiles go by, sky won’t be offended.
Stars will shine, sky won’t take credit.
Now imagine you’re that sky.
We all can live in that space where all potential is available.
We can be the open vast sky itself,
Daily events will pass by and won’t register.
Conflicts will dissolve themselves, no hard feelings.
No offenses and credits.
Actions are taken, no consequences
Everything will be allowed its full potential
Don’t take me wrong, it’s not an-indifferent-living, it’s in fact very deep living. This is the space of non-duality, non-attachment but also a space lived in full awareness at its full potential. This, to me, living in Dai KoMyo space. This is being the Great Bright Light.
This was my biggest take away from this year’s Shinpiden training. We can live in that space. We all can, at times. What it takes to constantly live in that space is the Practice.

What a motivation!
May we all, one day, be this great vast sky!
Love & Light,
Zeynep “Premdasi” Yilmaz
